Trivia

In 1990, Rakesh Roshan was contemplating signing Kimi Katkar opposite Amitabh Bachchan for his new project. Later, he dropped the idea of signing Katkar and penciled Sangeeta Bijlani and Ashwini Bhave for the role. The film with Bachchan never got made, but Roshan Sr. did go ahead with the project and signed Jackie Shroff instead. It was later titled KING UNCLE. See more »

One of Rakesh Roshan's most underrated movie
13 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I consider King Uncle to be a very overlooked movie. At the time of it's release it didn't make much of an impact at the box office. It's a shame really because it's a very enjoyable, fun filled movie with Jackie Shroff on great form in the main lead.

Anu Agarwal and Nagma provide good support and this movie is also notable for having an early performance from Shah Rukh Khan, before he really hit it big time with Darr. There is a pretty decent supporting cast consisting of Deven Verma, Dilip Tahil amongst others. As the main villain, I found Paresh Rawal to be terrifying as a child. Off course now he's more known as a comedy actor, I wish he would go back to doing the odd serious role like this one once in a while.

That said the highlight of the movie is Pooja Ruparel as Munna. Her acting is just so natural. After DDLJ, she disappeared from movies but in the past couple of years it seems that she's making a comeback, which is great news. The songs, as per usual in a Rakesh Roshan production are absolutely top notch. All in all rewatching King Uncle makes me feel nostalgic about a very happy childhood.
